Claws out

Shep Smith takes another swipe at Trump on live TV and Fox News viewers are freaking the F out

Shepard Smith has done it again. Yesterday, he defied Donald Trump and Fox News by fact-checking yet another false claim made by the president. That makes two days in a row now!

On Monday, Smith pushed back against Trump’s claims that a “migrant caravan” was coming to “invade” America. On Tuesday, he fact-checked remarks Trump made about using an executive order to end birthright citizenship.

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t!” Trump said in a recent interview with Axios. “I can do it just with an executive order.”

Speaking with Fox News Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts yesterday, Smith said:“Of course, he can’t do that. The reason: the Constitution.

Birthright citizenship is a part of the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution written in 1868 that states:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

Smith also pushed back on Trump’s claim that the United States is “the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States … with all of those benefits.”

“We’re not the only country in the world,” Smith corrected. “There are 30 of them, including Canada next door.”

He added: “Further, constitutional scholars say in the event the president actually tries this move, there would be an immediate injunction and his order would not ever take effect.”

Then he laughed the whole thing off, calling it “just talk.”

Naturally, Fox News viewers weren’t too pleased with Smith’s truth-telling, and many took to Twitter to express their outrage:
